Putty chisel – Remove old putty from window sashes
A putty chisel is a tool for removing window putty. The chisel features an adjustable support wheel that allows you to control the depth of chisel and prevents it from getting stuck either on the glazing points or between the windowpane and sash. Additionally, the fact that you don’t have to apply any pressure on the windowpane itself means that you significantly decrease the risk of cracking the glass while cutting and removing putty from the grooves.

IR makes putty soft and pliable, while ensuring temperatures never reach a point that would risk damaging the windowpane or sash. The putty chisel is designed to deliver the best results when paired with the Putty Scraper, the perfect tool for removing putty from windowpanes.
